Trapped ducklings are rescued by Beaverton High School student
A student from Southridge High School in Beaverton rushed to help ducklings who had fallen down a grate on a storm drain.
Southridge senior Robert Ruhnke heard a momma duck quacking desperately for help in the school parking lot. When he lifted up the grate on a nearby storm drain, he found a “raft” of ducklings struggling to stay afloat.
Ruhnke carefully scooped up one duckling after the other from the drain to dry land, all while the momma duck watched closely. It took a while, but he managed to get all the ducklings out of the storm drain to safety.
